Pokhriyal urges students to work diligently for success

Guwahati, Feb 14 (UNI) Underlining the rich heritage of India and its position as a world leader since the ancient times, Human Resource Development Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal 'Nishank' today urged the students to work diligently as they are the future of the country as well as the world.

Taking part in a 'Yuva Samvaad', organised by Central Board of Secondary Education, regional office, Guwahati, here, he said, "Students are the future of not only the country, but the entire world. Every situation is an examination, and the students and youths should strive to overcome all successfully."

He dwelt on the rich heritage of India, mentioning how India was perceived as the 'vishwa guru' (world leader) in terms of intellectual capital.

He said, "Our thoughts and ideologies had given us this leadership position. Such was the wide horizon of our thoughts that we perceived the world as our family. It also implied that we had such strength that we could hold everything and everyone together."

Pokhriyal also took questions from the students, sharing with them anecdotes from his own life, including how his daughter joined the Indian Army with the motto to serve the nation.

More than 1000 students from different schools of the city participated in the programme.
